Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

We’ve had a few at youth level in recent years. Noor Husin and Josh Barrett both managed it, and I have a feeling someone else has since then (Holsgrove?). Can’t think of it happening for the first team, but it’s been legal for nearly 100 years so you’d think it would have happened.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a)

Maybe play Esteves as our Right Winger? Holmes as RB? I dont like it but it might be the best we have. Esteves has really done nothing to suggest he can play RW Then perhaps play Holmes as our Right Winger? Esteves as RB? Could only see that working as a kind of anti-football. Hoof it to the big gu...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a)

3-4-3?

Rafael
Holmes- Morrison - McIntyre
Esteves - Rino - Laurent - Richards
Swift - Joao - Ejaria

Main issue is that Swift and Ejaria both like operating in the left hand channel. Feels like Aluko is the only real option for that right hand side, though I’m sure Semedo could do a job.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Reading are such a bland football club. Yesterday at 5:13 PM #128 fernandopartridge said: The football club is made in the town and region's image. Yep... Boring as oxf*rd At least our football club is in our town. And I never realised The West Midlands had such an exciting image. Probably my fault...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

This is my concern about the team put out yesterday. Ejaria Olise and Swift together hardly make a tackle between them. Excellent as they are going forward they will leave holes in midfield. Coventry exploited that to the max. With Meite back you have a better tackler and someone closing the opposi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

Tbf to Holmes after that dreadful backpass he was very good on the ball, drove forward nicely and used it well. I’m not a fan of knee-jerk reactions. Remember when people were saying McIntyre wasn’t good enough after one bad game? Esteves has also been a victim of that mentality. I haven’t seen any...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

:| Noticeable how Coventry as other teams have done this season. Attempted to exploit the acres of space behind Ejaria and Olise. Keeping players wide on both wings. We are defensively better with Meite in the team. As he puts a real shift in, dropping back. This is my concern about the team put ou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

Coventry are dreadful. If they had scored a couple of their chances then it wouldn’t have been enough because their defence is so ridiculously leaky.

Re: Snog, marry, avoid

Avoid - Puscas (reckon he's riddled with STDs) Didn’t expect Pepe to turn out to be Nigel Farage. Avoid - anyone under the age of 25 because that feels wrong (frankly under 30 feels wrong but that seriously limits my options!) Marry - let me just check Ejaria’s age... ah shit. So I guess I’ll settl...

Been very good in div2 this year from the look of it. 21 years old, might be an interesting one


Scores great goals rather than ordinary ones.

Doesn’t seem realistic. Reckon someone is spinning a yarn.

Re: Rival Watch

Norwich have won 15 games , but only two by more than one goal, and they were both by a two goal margin, I think it was the same last time they went up, that's why they will come straight back down again if they go up. Reckon they can spend more this time? They have the money from one PL season, tr...

yes that'd be my team as well. Would consider Pendlebury on the bench as thought he looked good. Also Gibson should be back, so him on the bench for Bristow Probably a choice between Tetek and Pendlebury, hard to see them both making the bench.

Re: Injury watch 2020/21

Zip According to Jnr Puscas is in Munich seeing a doctor. I’d be surprised if he is in the squad for the Coventry game.

Possibly been sent to negotiate a contract for Omar Richards?
